First published in 1921, The Shanty Book Part I: Sailor Shanties is a great read for those who want to increase their understanding and appreciation of shanties (old sailors' work songs). The 30 shanties in this book were collected by Sir Richard Runciman Terry (1865 – 1938), English organist, choir director and music scholar. They are accompanied by sheet music for piano and some interesting notes on each shanty. (7.1 MiB, PDF, 75 pages) See also the EPUB edition of this book (for smartphones and tablets)
